Following the surprise announcement of Pikmin 3 Deluxe for Nintendo Switch, Pikmin 3 is removed from sale on the Wii U eShop.
So i own the digital game on wii u, currently have it installed...i think. If i delete it will i not be able to redownload it? Never finished it as it came free with mario kart, might give it a nudge now, better then paying $100 NZD for a deluxe version that will never go on sale.
It's no longer available for purchase but it should remain available for download for people that own the game like yourself... At least for now. Nintendo are known to cut online support fairly early vs PS and Xbox. For example Wii has been taken completely offline for years vs Xbox 360 and PS3 digital store fronts still work fine. If you take your sweet time to play Nintendo games my advice is buy physical.
If you trust Nintendo for anything online you're taking a big risk.
This is shameful. Smh
Nintendo is awful at everything online-related.
Now instead of paying $30 for it you to pay $60 for it again.
Nintendo are a bunch of sleaze balls
And this is why i keep saying go for psychical copies.
Wow, what a dick move.
Classic Nintendo pulling a total dick move such as this, God damn... I'm not surprised
Nintendo are so damn greedy. They're doing this so people buy the $60 Switch version instead of the cheaper Wii U version.
No one bats an eyelid when it’s Nintendo Thought this would be bigger than it is
If Sony or Microsoft did this, it would be like the world is ending. But this is Nintendo so they get a free pass as usual.
Exactly if it was Sony / Microsoft or even EA / Ubisoft / Activision etc it would have been blown up by now This is the company which still gets away of making us pay full price for like 3-4 year old games
I swallowed paying $60 for the Bayo 2 port just because I never played the Wii U one, it came with Bayo 1, and I wanted to support platinum more then Nintendo. But I saw things like Tropical freeze being $60 despite only have funky kong added and realized this was going to be a common theme with Nintendo from then on.
